Transcending Identity Politics

Less Empathy Toward Outsiders

"Lippmann's highly influential concept of the "stereotype," for example, contended that new communication and transportation technologies had created a "world we have to deal with politically out of reach, out of sight, out of mind."

The "pictures in our heads" of this world - the stereotypes - ''are acted upon by groups of people, or by individuals acting in the name of groups." -
Christopher Simpson, Science of Coercion

"The inability to identify with others was unquestionably the most important psychological condition for the fact that something like Auschwitz could have occurred in the midst of more or less civilized and innocent people.

What is fellow traveling is primarily business interest: one pursues one's own advantage before all else, and simply not to endanger oneself, does not talk too much.

That is a general law of the status quo.

The silence under the terror was only its consequence.

The coldness of the societal monad, isolated competitor, was the precondition, an indifference to the fate of others, for the fact was that very few people reacted.

The torturers know this, and put it to test ever anew."
- Theodor Adorno


8 Ways to Improve Society Without the Political Process

Social status leads to trust, but not vice-versa

Why social snubs usually backfire

In an ancient hypothesis of the pre-Singularity ur-civilization, a golem was a non self-conscious entity that acted just like a conscious one: it laughed, cried, talked, ate, and generally behaved just like a real person, and if questioned, would claim to be conscious - but behind its superficial behavior, there was nobody home, no internalized model of the universe it lived in.

The philosophers had hypothesized that no such zombies existed, and that everything that claimed personhood was actually a person.

But the mammalians - those rugose, endothermic anthropoids with their ridiculously small incisors and anarchic social arrangements - knew better.

They also knew that you don't fight an infowar attack with facts and figures, any more than you attack a railway locomotive with spears and stone axes.

You don't fight a reptilian replicator attack by throwing energy and matter at hatchlings that will just use the matter and energy for fuel.

The more a mammalian is forced to corrupt empathy, the more she aches inside, and the more she grieves, the more she hates the reptilians.

"Before launching any new foreign adventures, the Bush gang has some homeland housekeeping to take care of: it is going to sweep up those pesky non-governmental organizations that are helping to turn world opinion against US bombs and brands.

The war on NGOs is being fought on two clear fronts.

One buys the silence and complicity of mainstream humanitarian and religious groups by offering lucrative reconstruction contracts.

The other marginalizes and criminalizes more independent-minded NGOs by claiming that their work is a threat to democracy.

"We are all tattooed in our cradles with the beliefs of our tribe; the record may seem superficial, but it is indelible. You cannot educate a man wholly out of superstitious fears which were implanted in his imagination, no matter how utterly his reason may reject them."- Oliver Wendell Holmes

Social stigma is severe social disapproval of personal characteristics or beliefs that appear outside of social cultural norms.

Social stigma often leads to marginalization.

Words in parenthesis ( ) are examples.

Social stigmas can be physical (leprosy, anorexia nervosa, obesity, scars or tattoos) or mental disabilities (mongolism), disorders or illnesses (acne), as well as illegitimacy, skin color or membership with a specific nationality, religion (Pentecostal) or lack of religion (atheist) or they may harken to fictional characters such as Vampires or Zombies.

A social stigma may be created by proclaiming oneself to be of a certain ethnicity (mixed or minority), religion (Heaven's Gate), ideology (neo-conservatism/neo-liberalism, corporatist, communist, socialist), political party (Nazism, Zionism, Wahhabism) in any of a myriad of geopolitical and corresponding sociopolitical contexts in various parts of the world.

What is accepted and expected in one social culture may be seen as totally aberrant and decadent in the social culture over the hills and far away.

The perception or attribution, rightly or wrongly, of criminality in all social cultures carries a strong social stigma that creates exclusion zones.

Criminals (illegal drug users, thieves, pedophiles), those refusing to abide by the rules of conduct of the social culture, will be branded with a barcode.

Individuals perceived to have poor "manners" or "strange" behavior are many times stigmatized as criminals even though there was no criminal intent and the actions committed were infractions and trival misdemeanors.

Tribal stigmas are either traits of an ethnicity, nation, or religion deemed to constitute a deviation from prevailing normative combinations of ethnicity, nationality or religious behavior or they may simply be antiCulture.

passing through

Although the specific social categories that become stigmatized can vary across time and place, the three basic forms of stigma (physical deformity, unacceptable personal behavioral traits, and tribal outgroup status) are found in throughout most cultures and time periods.

It is most likely the tendency to stigmatize has evolutionary roots.

Individuals that are perceived to function poorly in the group environment are seen as uncooperative and therefore untrustworthy.

Coöperation is the trademark of successful social groupings.

Of special note here it must be pointed out that individuals who perceive a disjunction of the social culture from actual real conditions and speak out may be stigmatize even though they have a valid, if unpopular, point of view.

Sameness of human nature arises from the fact humans share affinities that allow differences to be transcended in the realization of common pleasures.

Social cultural conditioning creates social cultural bonds through the creation of commonalities amidst individual differences.

If human life is enriched by good forms of social organization it is to be expected that human life is impeded by bad forms of social organization.

Social arrangements modify individual self-awareness.

Individuals form common notions as individuals can not entirely transcend their cultural perceptions in relation to a their own particular social culture.

Causes "Lasting Psychological Damage and Emotional Harm"

Why Social Isolation Leads to Inflammation

LSD, Hookers, Hit Men, and Snakes in Suits

1928 As headmaster of Verdun High School in the suburbs of Montreal Donald Olding Hebb takes an innovative approach to education assigning interesting schoolwork and sending disruption outside.

1937 At the Montreal Neurological Institute Hebb recognizes the brain of a child could regain partial or full function when a portion is removed but similar damage in an adult could be catastrophic.

He deduced the prominent role external stimulation play in thought processes.

Lack of stimulation causes diminished function and sometimes hallucinations.

1942 At the Yerkes Laboratories of Primate Biology at the Yerkes National Primate Research Center Hebb develops emotional tests for chimpanzees.

1949 In The Organization of Behavior Donald Olding Hebb introduces the concepts of synaptic plasticity and cell assemblies to provide a theory of the neurophysiological basis of behavior.

Hebb influences all areas of psychology and neuroscience:

Hebbian Learning - Connections between neurons increase in efficacy in proportion to the degree of correlation between pre- and post-synaptic activity.

Cell Assembly - Group of neurons tend to fire together.

Phase Sequence - Thinking is the sequential activation of sets of cell-assemblies.

"When an axon of cell A is near enough to excite cell B and repeatedly or persistently takes part in firing it, some growth process or metabolic change takes place in one or both cells such that A's efficiency, as one of the cells firing B, is increased." - Donald Olding Hebb

June 1, 1951 Donald Hebb, head of McGill’s psychology department, and officials from the Canadian Defence Research Board, the CIA and the British Defence Research Policy Committee meet to discuss research.

Donald Hebb is tasked to experiments in sensory deprivation .

1957 CIA funds bizarre experiments on healthy confused individuals keeping them asleep and in isolation for weeks or months; administering doses of electroshock thirty to forty times the normal power; testing experimental drug cocktails which included neuroleptics, LSD, PCP and MDMA.

Many victims are normal people seeking relief from minor psychiatric ailments - postpartum depression, anxiety, even for help to deal with marital difficulties.

They were used as experimental test subjects, without informed consent - as human guinea pigs to satisfy the thirst for information on how to control human thought process'.

Project MKUltra eventually leads to the publication of the KUBARK Counterintelligence Interrogation manual which suggest the most effective method of passive enslavment is social isolation of the non-compliant.

1964 MKSEARCH designed to develop, test, and evaluate capabilities in the covert use of biological, chemical, and radioactive material systems and techniques for producing predictable human behavioral and/or physiological changes in support of highly sensitive operational requirements.

1973 CIA Director Richard Helms destroys all MKUltra files.

1975 Church Committee reports CIA and the DoD had conducted experiments on both unwitting and cognizant human subjects as part of an extensive program to influence and control human behavior through the use of psychoactive drugs along with other chemical, biological, and psychological means.

Presidential-appointed commission releases information publicly that reveals that, days before his death, the CIA surreptitiously dosed Olson with LSD.

Critical witness' die strangely only days and weeks before they are to be questioned by prosecutors; government officials refused to speak and those that do suddenly developed severe amnesia; crucial documents disapear; investigators were intimidated and threatened.

Protracted social isolation of adult mice induced behavioral, transcriptional and ultrastructuralchanges in oligodendrocytes of the prefrontal cortex and impaired adult myelination.

Social re-integration was sufficient to normalize behavioral and transcriptional changes.

Short periods of isolation affected chromatin and myelin, but did not induce behavioral changes.

Myelinating oligodendrocytes in the adult prefrontal cortex respond to social interaction with chromatin changes, suggesting myelination acts as a form of adult plasticity.

Prefrontal cortex is involved in complex emotional and cognitive behavior.

Early social experiences in neonatal or juvenile animals result in defective developmental myelination.

In mice deprived of social stimuli ultrastructural analysis revealed thinner myelin sheaths in prefrontal cortex, but not in the corpus callosum.

In social isolation, brain makes less myelin

Throughout our lifespan, new sensory experiences and learning continually shape neuronal circuits to form new memories.

Plasticity of oligodendrocytes and myelin sheaths play a crucial role in learning and memory through modification of the oligodendrocyte lineage following sensory experience.

Physiological and behavioural consequences of plasticity manipulation is now recognized in the evidence for oligodendrocyte and myelin dysfunction in neurodevelopmental disorders with cognitive symptoms.

"Neuroplasticity has the power to produce more flexible but also more rigid behaviors - a phenomenon I call "the plastic paradox."

Ironically, some stubborn habits and disorders are products of plasticity.

Once a particular plastic change occurs in the brain and becomes well established, it can prevent other changes from occurring.

It is by understanding both the positive and negative effects of plasticity that we can truly understand the extent of human possibilities." - Norman Doidge

This web site is not a commercial web site and is presented for educational purposes only.

This website defines a new perspective with which to engage reality to which its author adheres. The author feels that the falsification of reality outside personal experience has forged a populace unable to discern propaganda from reality and that this has been done purposefully by an international corporate cartel through their agents who wish to foist a corrupt version of reality on the human race. Religious intolerance occurs when any group refuses to tolerate religious practices, religious beliefs or persons due to their religious ideology. This web site marks the founding of a system of philosophy named The Truth of the Way of the Lumière Infinie - a rational gnostic mystery religion based on reason which requires no leap of faith, accepts no tithes, has no supreme leader, no church buildings and in which each and every individual is encouraged to develop a personal relation with the Creator and Sustainer through the pursuit of the knowledge of reality in the hope of curing the spiritual corruption that has enveloped the human spirit. The tenets of the Truth of the Way of the Lumière Infinie are spelled out in detail on this web site by the author. Violent acts against individuals due to their religious beliefs in America is considered a "hate crime."

This web site in no way condones violence. To the contrary the intent here is to reduce the violence that is already occurring due to the international corporate cartels desire to control the human race. The international corporate cartel already controls the world economic system, corporate media worldwide, the global industrial military entertainment complex and is responsible for the collapse of morals, the elevation of self-centered behavior and the destruction of global ecosystems. Civilization is based on coöperation. Coöperation does not occur at the point of a gun.

American social mores and values have declined precipitously over the last century as the corrupt international cartel has garnered more and more power. This power rests in the ability to deceive the populace in general through corporate media by pressing emotional buttons which have been preprogrammed into the population through prior corporate media psychological operations. The results have been the destruction of the family and the destruction of social structures that do not adhere to the corrupt international elites vision of a perfect world. Through distraction and coercion the direction of thought of the bulk of the population has been directed toward solutions proposed by the corrupt international elite that further consolidates their power and which further their purposes.
